Police say that

seven year-old's

fatality shows

traffic problem

'far-reaching'


By KARIN HERIG
'-Trinbie Staff Reporter
-THE DEATH of a young
child in a traffic accident has
given police cause for extreme
concern, a spokesman said yes-
terday.
There have now been eight
deaths already on the country's
roads in the first Mitee weeks
of the year. Last-year there
were 50 fatalities due to traffic
accidents throughout the
Bahamas and just 35 in 2002.


Nakito Rahming
"This is cause for extreme
concern, this incident indicates
that our traffic problems are
even more far-reaching than we
previously thought," said Cor-
p;oral David Lockhart, crash
reconstructionist with the Traf-
fic Division.
According to reports, seven-
year-old Nakito Rahming died
after he was struck by a motor-
bike as he rode.his bicycle on
Thursday evening. Nakito was
ripling south along West Street
on Thursday evening with his
cousin Kentosh Rahming, also
aged seven, when the fatal acci-
dent occurred.
Walter Lockhart, the driver
of a 2004 Honda motorcycle,
travelling north on his motor-
bike along West Street, collided
with the boys, Inspector Wal-
ter Evans told The Tribune.
"(Nakito) was immediately
transported to Princess Mar-
garet Hospital, but his wounds
were severe and he died some-
time later that night," he said.
'Kentosh sustained "cuts and
bruises" on his body. He was
treated at the same hospital and
is now recovering at home.
The motorcyclist has not
been charged with any offence
and the investigation into the
accident is still in the early
stages, police said.
,Corporal Lockhart said that
this incident is especially tragic
because it involves an innocent
child.


"This is the hardest one of
the rIatftc IajiIIlhis thif' \ar
It's alv, aNs %er\ hard "thcn chil-
dren are the victims, they have
not yet experienced life before
they are gone," he said.
The crash reconstructionist
said that the fact that "we are
only into the third week of this
year and we are already up to
number eight in traffic fatali-
ties," shows that the motoring
public "is clearly not listening
to our ad\ ice, or has absolutely
no intention of changing their

driving patterns."
Corporal Lockhart said that
police have seen an alarming
increase of fatalities among
pedestrians, motorcyclists and
cyclists.
The eight traffic fatalities this
year include two pedestrians,
one motorcyclist and two
cyclists. Three of the victims
died in Grand Bahama, and five
in New Providence.
"The high number of inci-
dents shows us that something is
clearly going wrong somehow,"
Corporal Lockhart noted.
He said that police, in partic-
ular the Traffic Division, now
have to "figure out where we
go from here."
"We will have to sit down and
determine what other measures
we want to implement," he said.
He pointed out however that
"the police cannot do it all
themselves."
"Most people think the Traf-
fic Division is only there to put
money in the Treasury, but in
fact our main concern is the
safety of each and every per-
son, but to ensure that safety
we need the assistance of the
people," he said.

Nakia Ferguson, the griev-

old boy whose life came to a
tragic end on Thursday night
after he was hit by a motorcy-

a liking to.
"He was never really a rude

'Blatant disrespect'




shown for fathers'




rights in Bahamas


By KARIN HERIG

B AHAMIAN law
"blatantly disre-
spects" the rights
and responsibili-
ties of fathers
towards their children, it was
claimed yesterday.

putting on a display for the
international community that is
not reflective in its, own country.
Referring to the Affiliation
Proceedings Act, Mr Dun-
combe said that it is "poorly
written" and clearly denounces
the role of the father.
Addressing members of the
media at a press conference
held yesterday in front of Court
No 3, Victoria Gardens, he said
that the Act "only recognizes
half of the family structure, all
its talks about is maintenance,
the financial contribution for
the child."
"Why is the Bahamas deceiv-
ing the international communi-
ty by pretending that we have
ratified this Act allowing fathers
to have rights to their children?
It is very hypocritical, because
domestically children are being
denied their basic rights to their
fathers and extended family,"
Mr Duncombe told The Tri-
bune.
The organisation president
said that the Bahamas needs to
enact laws that adhere to the
international Convention on the
Rights of the Child, a treaty to
which the Bahamas signed onto
in 1989.
"In the Convention, article
five, it says that the state must
respect the rights and respon-,
sibility of parents and the
extended family to provide
guidance for the child. which is

reading from the Convention.
Mr Duncombe alleged that
the Bahamian government so
far had not adhered to this
treaty and has in "16 years not
taken any steps to promote the
children's rights."
"The Convention says that it
is the states' obligation to pro-
tect children from any form of
discrimination, but yet in the
Bahamas children are routinely
discriminated against. The
Department of Social Services
chooses to alienate Bahamian
fathers, they look on us as an
irritants," he added.
Mr Duncombe reiterated that
children "need more than just
money, they need the protec-
tion of their fathers, to offer
guidance."

dragged and incarcerated in
some instances for child main-
tenance, but we are more than
just a cash register. We are par-
ents who need to be respect-
ed," he noted.


'We need our

men to stand

up and

perform their

roles, but at

the same time

how are they

going to do
those things?'

-Omar Smith


Also speaking at the press
conference, deputy of the
Bahamas Democratic Move-
ment (BDM) Omar Smith said
that Bahamian law must reflect
that "parenting is not a one-per-
son job."
"It takes a mother and a
father to raise a child. It takes
extended family also.
"We say it takes a village to


raise a child all the time, but we
don't mean it, because our laws
don't reflect it," he noted.
Mr Smith said that if fathers
are allowed to be active role
models for their children it will
help alleviate some of the coun-
try's social problems, especially
youth criminality.
"How do we change the
problems we have in our coun-
try in regards to crime, violence
against women, violence against
children.
"How can you expect (the
children) to be productive, if
there's nothing within our legal
system to protect them in their
formative years," he said.
The BDM deputy leader said.
that Bahamas is one of the only
countries in the world "that is
still holding on to these anti-
quated colonial laws."
On the subject of successful
single parenting examples, Mr
Smith said: "We have had
Bahamians mothers who have
been doing it for years, and my
hat is off to them, but it should
not be that way.
"We need our men to stand,
up and perform their roles, but
at the same time how are they
going to do those things when,
the system that we have encour-
ages the type of behavior we
have in our society now," he
said.
Mr Smith agreed with Mr
Duncombe in saying that the
Affiliation Proceedings Act
should "-be sent back to the pits
of hell from whence it came."

a cross-section

,'International Training Division.

Royal Bahamas Defence Force

,\was attended by 32 officers

and Bahamas Customs and

missions overlap."
According to Mr Johns, it is a
daily practice for a Bahamian
Defence Force officer to board
three USCG ships in order "to
help enforce Bahamiani and US
laws."
The most recent training
event allows for more Bahami-
ans to become familiar with
maritime law through theoreti-
cal and practical lessons in
defensive tactics including:
Smuggling trends and detection;
boarding and searching of ves-,
sels; arrest procedures; use: of
force; drug identification and
testing; effective communica-
tions and high risk search tech-
niques.
Before the week-long course
began, 12 instructors from the
RBDF and Customs participat-
ed in their own intense 'Train
the Trainers' course. The top
instructors were selected by the
Coast Guard to assist with the

through several sessions realized
that it all makes sense to have
all the agencies here. Separate-
ly we conduct se% eral maritime
investigations and operations
throughout the Bahamas,and it
just makes sense we have one
standard procedure to go by."
Corporal Hubert Smith,
attached to the RBPF's Marine
Unit in Abaco, said that the
training he received will greatly
enhance his job and he is enthu-
siastic about sharing the infor-
mation with his fellow officers
in Abaco.
During the graduation cere-
mony Commodore Rolle told
the course participants that
there are three phases in the
conduct of war: Strategic, oper-
ational and tactical.
"In the tactical stage you have
been prepared to conduct the
fight, if necessary, against smug-
gling in general," said Com-
modore Rolle. "I implore you
' to utilise your skills properlyin
any of the situations you come
:upon.
Congratulating the partici-
pants yesterday was Robert
Witajewski, Deputy Chief of
Mission of the US Embassy.
"What you are going to be
doing is extremely important
and you are going to be faced
with very delicate situations,"


Mr Witajewski said. "You all
are constantly going to be faced
with balancing international la%
%\ith the need to protect your- !
self and ensure your own safety
as well as the individuals on the
boat. Occasionally you are
going to be doing your job in
the face of great provocation
and that is going to require a
lot of self-restraint and sophis-
tication on your part."
Mr Witajewski said that an
incredible amount of work went
into organising the training
courses and added that it was
obvious from the officers' suc-
cess, it was well worth the effort.
Cranston Evans of Bahamas
Customs trained as an instructor
and assisted in the Boarding
Officer Course.
Mr Evans said that the whole
course was useful but he espe-
cially benefited from the various
procedures of boarding, proce-
dures of arrest, weapon
removal, methods of handcuff-


ing and learning different
stances.
Liaison Officer Terry Johns
added that 90 per cent of the
boardings done on sea are
"calm, cool and.collected" but
boarding officers must be pre-
pared for the 10 per cent of sit-
uations that may be extreme.
Leading Seaman Philip Far-
rington of the RBDF, also an
instructor, said it is essential for
law enforcers to prepare them-
selves for that rare occasion.
"Take the scenario that a ves-
sel you board may be engaged
in drug smuggling, you can
expect deadly force and you
may have to engage in deadly
force. The training not only
helped me to better prepare
myself but also taught me how
to prepare the men in my
team."
The training courses allowed
Lt Jonathan Andrechik of the
USCG Mobile Training Team
to visit the Bahamas for the first


time. Lt Andrechik, based in
York Town, Virginia, said he
was very impressed with the
enthusiasm that all officers dis-
played during the Boarding
Officer Course.
Although Mr Andrechik has
trained in places such as North-
ern Europe, Africa, Australia
as well as Central and South
America, he said he was most
impressed with the profession-
alism he observed in his
Bahamian students.
He added that the role play-
ing gave him the opportunity to
learn about Bahamian culture.
He said he observed that each
participant seemed to be highly
qualified even before the train-
ing began.
"The training allows us to
come together when it really
matters," said Mr Andrechik,
"when terror strikes on the seas
we really need to work together
and continue working together
for continued operations."

Bush's freedom speech


WASHINGTON-- On his way out of the
first Cabinet meeting after his re-election,
President Bush gave his longtime chief
speechwriter the theme for the second Inau-
gural Address: "I want this to be the freedom
1 speech."
. In the next month, the writer, Michael Ger-
son, had a heart attack. With two stents in his
arteries, the recovering writer received a call
i from a president who was careful not to apply
any deadline pressure. "I'm not calling to
see if the inaugural speech is OK," Bush said.
"I'm calling to see if the guy writing the inau-
gural speech is OK."
Thursday's strongly thematic address was
indeed "the freedom speech." Not only did
the words "freedom, free, liberty" appear 49
times, but the president used the world-
watched occasion to expound his basic reason
- for the war and his vision of America's mis-
sion in the world.
I rate it among the top five of a score of
second-inaugurals in our history. Lincoln's
profound sermon "with malice toward none"
is incomparable, but Bush's second was bet-
ter than Jefferson's mean-spirited pouting at
"the artillery of the press."
In Bush's "second gathering" (Lincoln
called it his "second appearing"), the Texan
evoked JFK's "survival of liberty" phrase to
convey his central message: "The survival of
liberty in our land increasingly depends on
the success of liberty in other lands." Bush
repeated that internationalist human-rights
idea, with a slight change, in these words:
"The best hope for peace in our world is the
expansion of freedom in all the world."
The change in emphasis was addressed to
accommodationists who make "peace" and
"the peace process" the No. 1 priority of for-
eign policy. Others of us formerly known
as hardliners, now called Wilsonian idealists
put freedom first, recalling that the U.S.
has often had to go to war to gain and pre-
serve it. Bush makes clear that it is human lib-
erty, not peace, that takes precedence, and
that it is tyrants who enslave peoples, start
wars and provoke revolution. Thus, the
spread of freedom is the prerequisite to world
peace.
It takes guts to take on that peace-free-
dom priority so starkly. Bush, by retaliatory
and pre-emptive decisions in his first term
and by his choice of words and his tall


CLEARANCE


stance in this speech, and despite his unmod-
ulated delivery now drives his critics bat-
ty by exuding a buoyant confidence reminis-
cent of FDR and Truman.
He promised to use America's influence
"confidently in freedom's cause." He jabbed
at today's Thomases: "Some, I know, have
questioned the global appeal of liberty,
though this time in history, four decades
defined by the swiftest advance of freedom
ever seen, is an odd time for doubt."
Bush has seen the enemy and it is not us.
Nor is it only a group of nations (the "axis of
evil"). Nor is the prime enemy the tactic of
terrorism.
The president identified the enemy (and
did not euphemize it, as Nixon's writers did,
as "the adversary") a half-dozen times in this
speech. The archenemy of freedom, now as
ever, is tyranny.
That's thinking big, with history in mind.
That comes from reading Natan Sharansky,
the former Soviet dissident, and sends a mes-
sage of hope to democrats jailed by despots in
places like China, Zimbabwe and Saudi Ara-
bia. Bush embraced "the ultimate goal of
ending tyranny in the world," but added that
our active encouragement of reform "is not
primarily the task of arms."
That was also a reference to Iraq, where
the greatest danger to post-election democ-
racy is less from Zarqawi's terrorist murder-
ers than from the legion of Baathists who
want to reimpose Saddam's brand of tyranny.
A metaphorical nitpick: He said our liber-
ation of millions lit "a fire in the minds of men
and one day this untamed fire of freedom
will reach the darkest corners of our world."
I would have replaced "this untamed fire,"
which could be dangerous, with "the light
from this fire," which would have illuminated
the "darkest corner." (Once a speechwriter.)
Evidence that Bush's "freedom speech"
was tightly edited for time was in his con-
cluding evocation of Philadelphia's Liberty
Bell. Cut out of a near-final draft was the
line on the side of the bell from Leviticus
that rings out Bush's theme: "Proclaim liberty
throughout all the land unto all the inhabi-
tants thereof."

Sweethearting,




an 'honourable"




Bahamian sport


EDITOR, The Tribune.
Several years ago, we hap-
pened to be conversing with a
recently arrived Canadian exec-
utive and he mentioned to -us
that he understood that the
national sport in the Bahamas is
"Sweethearting", and he was
quite tickled.
The dictionary which we
often use, defines "Sweetheart-
ing" as: Darling, one who is
loved for our local consumption
and in Bahamian parlance, we
all know what our definition is.
The same dictionary defines
"Honourable as: Deserving of
honour; entitled to honour; con-
sistent with an untarnished rep-
utation. In addition, "adultery"
is defined as: Voluntary sexual
intercourse between a married
man and someone other than
his wife, or between a married
woman and someone other than
her husband.
It is obvious that an hon-
ourable person cannot be seen
to be a "Sweetheart". However,
events as they continue to
unfold seem to indicate that in
addition to the definitions that
appear herein, and considering
Mr Christie'_ remarks to the


1993 Commission of Inquiry
that here in The Bahamas we
do certain things differently, it is
possible that "Sweethearting"
can now be categorized as an
"Honourable" pastime.
Our system of government
continues to refer t6 members
of Parliament as "Honourable".
In passing, we remember that
during the 1983 Commission of
Inquiry, even whilst the Com-
missioners deliberated, a cer-
tain member of the then gov-
ernment who was being
adversely reported on, was
declared "Honourable" for life.
As for us for many years we
have felt that the word "Hon-
ourable" should have been
retired in relation' to members
of Parliament.
If our system of government
is to work or should be seen to
work, it seems obvious that if
members of Parliament and
government Ministers are to be
worthy of being addressed or


referred to as "Honourable",
then the society and indeed the
entire populace should require
of them conduct that can be
appropriately emulated, any-
thing less is totally unaccept-
able.
In a previous communication
we stated that Ministers of the
government are, among other
things, puppets, and the Prime
Minister knowing that they
serve only at his pleasure has
the unadulterated power to
remove or transfer him/her
whenever he desires.
A former minister of the
FNM government did not seem
to understand how ministerial
government works, and accused
the then Prime Minister of
being a dictator; his removal
had nothing to do with Mr.
Ingraham being a dictator.
It is patently obvious to us
that any Minister of govern-
ment whose conduct openly
indicates adultery, the Prime
Minister should without delay
remove that Minister.

PLP chair must




'tread lightly.


EDITOR, The Tribune.
RAYNARD Rigby's
response to the Action Group
of the FNM demonstrating in
the Squa red gainist Bradley
Roberts, was ill conceived and
downright presumptuous. What
kind of response does Mr Rigby
expect from the Official Oppo-
sition when a young lady accus-
es a Cabinet Minister of rape?
Political novice or not, Rigby
should know that the Opposi-
tion has every right to capitalise
on the misfortunes of the Gov-
ernment, its Ministers and/or its
Members of Parliament. If Cab-
inet Ministers wish not to be
the targets of sexual controver-
sy they know exactly what they
should hot do.
Rather than lecture the offi-
cial Opposition, Chairman Rig-
by (novice) should spend his
time counselling PLP Cabinet
Ministers. The FNM Action
Group didn't do one thing that
any other political party would
not have done, while in Oppo-
sition, including the PLP. The
Government's political losses


DON. STAINTON

ALL ALUMINUM PATIO ROOF OR
SCREENED ROOM


are always the Opposition's
political gains. Instead of want-
ing to broaden our democracy,
lawyer Rigby seems hell bent
on curtailing our freedoms.
For demonstrating, Rigby
charged the Action group with
"attempting, (though feebly),
to spread mistruths." When
since afly political party ever
waited for the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth,
so help me God, before going
for the jugular? Never! While
in Opposition, Bradley Roberts
had a scandalous story on the
FNM every time Parliament
met in session and that was
indeed his right to do. Members
of the FNM Government left
themselves vulnerable; Bradley
Roberts and the PLP took
advantage of their vulnerability
and so my advice to Raynard
Rigby is: "Get a life, young
novice!"
If it is true that it took the
Police three weeks before get-
ting around to questioning Min-
ister Roberts on this rape alle-
gation, then I agree with the
Action Group politics
seemed to have interferred with
the investigation. Why should
it take three weeks to bring the
Minister in for questioning
when it is normal procedure for
the Police to immediately, upon
receiving a complaint, launch a
search for the accused and pull
them in for questioning? Mr
Rigby said that there was no
evidence that the police was
being pressured, politically; but
does the PLP Chairman really
believe that we, the general
public, are so stupid that we
would expect to read about the
evidence (that the police was
being pressured politically) in
the print media? He cannot be
that naive.
Rigby charged that "it is not
for the FNM to judge the Min-


ister or to determine whether
the allegation is indeed true"
and I agree with him, but I don't
believe that the FNM or any-
body else has said that the alle-
gation was true except, of
course, the lady making the
complaint and her lawyer. Whaf
they 'are saying, in fact, is, how-
ever, that the Minister ought to
resign, because, true or false,
this is the honourable thing to
do.
I appreciate what Rigby
thinks his role is as Chairman of
the Party that to defend the
party and it's government at all
cost but some things are just
indefensible and he ought to
know when to keep his mouth
shut.
I am no fan of the FNM; but
as the Official Opposition, they
have a constitutional role to
play in opposing the Govern-
ment and I will always defend
their right to do so. The tone
and language of the PLP's
National Chairman's written
response to the FNM's Action,
Group, as reported in the daily
newspapers, give the impres-
sion of dictatorial tendencies at
work and that concerns me
greatly.
Another piece of advice for
young, inexperienced,politician
wannabe Raynard Rigby,
"tread lightly, my son."

Gangs (From page 1B)


attacked and stabbed at the
school.
Teachers at RM Bailey held a
sit-in attended by the minister
of education following the inci-
dent on Thursday. They said
they live in fear of violent stu-
dents and called on government
to address their plight.
Mr Reid, a former gang
member himself, insisted that
the problem persists because
authorities are "in denial."
"Police refuse to admit that
there is a problem. Principals
refuse to admit there is a prob-
lem.
"They really need to come
down to reality and see what
the rest of us see," he said.
Mr Reid claimed that there
are gangs in "almost every
school" as well as in every
neighbourhood in the Bahamas.
According to Mr Johnson,
however, the problem is not as

Johnson explained, adding that
authorities had a responsibility
to attempt to develop even vio-
lent students.
Education Minister Alfred
Sears told protesting RM Bailey
teachers on Thursday that he
aims to create a boarding school
style programme for anti-social
children.
Mr Sears said the scheme
would offer excellent academic
facilities, but would place par-
ticular emphasis on socialisa-
tion.
Mr Reid said he made a pro-
posal to government for the
establishment of a gang pre-
vention and intervention cen-
tre, but received no response.

develop


THE 400-strong
population of
Mayaguana, the
remotest of the
Bahama islands, is
growing excited over a massive
hotel and resort development
that will transform life there for-
ever.
Next week, groundwork is
expected to begin on a multi-
million dollar project that will
include two hotels, three mari-
nas and other facilities. Building
work is expected to last for sev-
eral years.
The I-Group of Boston is
behind what will prove to be a
complete transformation of
Mayaguana's sleepy atmos-
phere.
From being a depressed econ-
omy with little to offer but fish-
ing and farming, the island will
become a lively resort to reckon
with, according to residents who
are looking to the future with
great expectations.
"It's something that we've
needed here for many years,"
an islander said yesterday,
"Mayaguana has for too long
been regarded as a forgotten
island."
' All the southern Bahamas.
will benefit from the scheme as
workers will be flown in from
Crooked Island, Acklins and
Inagua to undertake construc-
tion.
On completion, the develop-
merit will boost)Mayaguana's
population considerably, revers-
ing a depopulation trend that
has been common in the south-
ern islands for many years.
"This will generate a lot of
business in Mayaguana," said
one source. "In the past the
island's isolation has been its
misfortune, but now it looks like
being the cause of its good luck.
"I think the I-Group wanted
a place well away from the
stress of modern life. They liked
the island's tranquillity and the
friendliness of its people."
Mayaguana lies 297 miles
south of Nassau. It is so far-
flung that it is almost within
sight of Haiti.

DISPUTES over land own-
ership are still the number one
topic of conversation in tiny
Rum Cay, where three separate
developments, are now trans-
forming life, not always for the
better.
Long-time residents feel the
homey atmosphere on one of
the Bahamas' remotest isles is
changing as tensions rise over
who owns what. There is grow-
ing resentment, especially
among 'absentee' land-owners
who feel their rights are being
overrun.
One islander told The Tri-
bune: "At least five Bahamian
families are affected by the sit-
uation, in which land title is
being challenged almost on a
daily basis.
"I think many people have
had land more or less taken
from beneath their feet. It is a
very disturbing situation and
people on the island seem to
talk about little else nowadays."
Not all developers in Rum
Cay are being held responsible
for the situation. But there are
strong feelings that ownership
claims are being cast aside in
favour of quick land sales.
"People are up in arms about
it," said another resident,
"Owners are coming here flash-
ing pieces of paper trying to
prove the land is theirs.
"There is one Nassau family
who paid 15,000 for a lot many
years ago, but this now seems to
have been swallowed up in a
new development.
"I'd be very surprised if this
whole question of land doesn't
end up in the courts."
Rum Cay has become one of
the hottest properties in the
Bahamas since a new airstrip
was built. Once nigh inaccessi-
ble, this delightful outpost is
now a favoured hideaway for
those trying to escape the stress
of modern life.
Foreigners are growing


increasingly interested in what
the island has to offer. But the
invasion has left many of the
island's 50-strong "native" pop-
ulation feeling uneasy.
ON a more cheerful note, one
of Rum Cay's great characters,
bar owner Delores Wilson, cel-
ebrates her 73rd birthday next
week and customers from far
and wide will be flying and sail-


ient


let down the people of distant
Ragged Island, it seems. What'
they wanted most for Christmas:
was a fresh water system. What;
they got was nothing at all.
Chief Councillor Granville,
Hepburn told The Tribune: "Itk
was promised by Christmas, but,
we are still waiting."
Government officials have;
told islanders they are looking
for a barge to transport a drill-


FailIsad

RondB


ing in for the party.
Mrs Wilson was born and
brought up on Rum Cay but
spent some years in Nassau as a
teacher at St Barnabas. In 1974,
after returning home, she estab-
lished Kaye's Bar in Port Nel-
son, the island 'capital', where
she holds court every night and
hears all the local gossip.

'This will

generate a lot

of business in

Mayaguana,'

-island source

"I went to Nassau to go to
school when I was 14," she told
The Tribune, "After teaching
at St Barnabas for 10 years I
came home. Now I really enjoy-
ing running my bar and hear-
ing what everyone has to say."
Mrs Wilson will be getting the
flags out for her birthday, which
has now become an annual
event on Rum Cay. Twelve
boats are expected to arrive for
the occasion and some cus-
tomers will be flying in from
Nassau.
"It will be so good to see
everyone," she said, "I like to
chat a lot and I always regard
my birthday as a time to meet
old friends."
In the early 1990s, Mrs Wil-
son recalled her early life on
the island in her book Rum
Cay, My Home. She still sells
copies to visitors and claims it
gives an excellent insight into
former days on the island.

NEWS travels slowly in
sleepy Eleuthera, where royal
enthusiast Henry Sands is still
waiting for a full report on
Prince Harry's controversial
swastika exploits last week.
"I don't know the full story so
there's little I can say about it,"
he said yesterday, "I'm still
waiting to see the newspapers.
All I know is that he is sup-
posed to have done something
wrong."
Mr Sands, 79, a well-known
figure in Savannah Sound,
keeps track of the royals for
several reasons. Firstly, he's a
keen royalist. Secondly, he got
to know several of the Royal
Family when they visited near-
by Windermere Island. And
thirdly, he and his wife were
guests at the wedding of Prince
Charles and Lady Diana
Spencer 24 years ago.
"I continue to treasure my
memories of that occasion,"
said Mr Sands, who still bakes
bread daily at his home for a
procession of regular customers.
"And when I've gone, I hope
my family will hang on to my
mementoes of the wedding."
As for Prince Harry, whose
wearing of a Nazi armband to a
fancy dress party caused ruc-
tions last week, Mr Sands said:
"I'm looking forward to reading
all about it."

MP: Don't forget




the plight of Abaco




lobster fishermen


By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS the government works to
alleviate the distress Abaco
farmers experience over the cit-
rus canker disease, Abaco MP
Robert Sweeting says he does
not want the plight of the lob-
ster fisherman to be forgotten.
Farmers in Abaco were
forced to destroy thousands of
seedlings and trees suspected
6f containing citrus canker this
week. The disease affects the
leaves of the mature plant,
young stems and fruit and even-


tually kills the plant.
Speaking in the House of
Assembly on Wednesday, Mr
Sweeting reminded MPs that
even as they are concerned for
the citrus farmers, the fisher-
men on Abaco continue to suf-
fer from the devastating finan-
cial blow they experienced after
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne
hit the island last September.
Yesterday, he told The Tri-
bune that millions of dollars
worth of lobster traps were
damaged at sea.
Mr Sweeting said the waters
remained too murky for at least

Leslie Miller, minister of trade and industry

Miller attends


regional energy


body meeting


By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Senior Staff Reporter
IN a continuing bid to get
the Bahamas signed onto the
proposed PetroCaribe, a
regional energy corporation,
Trade and Industry Minister
Leslie Miller is attending what
could be the second to last
meeting before an agreement
is made.
The meeting, being held in
Caracas, Venezuela, will be a
precursor to the last gathering
held in New Providence next
month.
The PetroCaribe project
represents a Caribbean/Latin
American partnership with
the objective of deflating the
high oil prices in the
Caribbean region b) import-
ing petroleum products direct-
ly from Venezuela, together
with Iraq and Iran, one of
three major oil producing
countries, so cutting out the
middle man in many cases.
Mr Miller said that repre-
sentatives from countries,
including the Bahamas,
Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana,
Brazil and Trinidad and
Tobago will meet with
Venezuela's Mines and Ener-
gy Minister Rafael Ramirez.
The Bahamas is in a similar
condition to other countries
in the region, like Jamaica,
which imports more than 90
per cent of its resources need-
ed for energy consumption.
Meanwhile The Miami
Herald reported yesterday
that Petr6leos de Venezuela
SA, South America's largest
oil company, may lose use of
its Isla Refinery on Curaqao
as the Caribbean island starts
a study on the facility's future.
The review is partially in


response to pressure from
environmental groups on the
island, who are seeking to
close the refinery, alleging air
pollution. Petr6leos de
Venezuela is paying about $18
million a year for use of the
plant, which processes about
200,000 barrels of oil a day.
However, experts say that
Isla is important, especially if
Venezuela wants to develop
its PetroCaribe initiative.
Under PetroCaribe,
Venezuela would sell refined
oil products through the
Caribbean at a discount under
government-to-government
contracts.
Curagao, is about 36 miles
north of Venezuela.
SMr Milklr has been a major
Kicker of the PetroCaribe'
idea, and the creation 'of a
Bahamian National Energy
Corporation which would
directly purchase crude and
other refined oil products
from Venezuela or fellow
Caribbean governments, thus
cutting out offshore sub-
sidiaries of the major oil com-.
panies Shell, Texaco and
Esso.
However, oil companies
have criticised Mr Miller say-
ing that the Bahamian gov-
ernment has misunderstood
the gas pricing structure incor-
rectly believing their offshore
subsidiaries are profiteering.
The pricing structure in the
Bahamas is controlled by the
government with the admin-
istration taking $1.06 per gal-
lon in tax and seven per cent
stamp duty on top. Wholesale
and retail markups are set to
$0.44 and $0.33 respectively.
A gallon of petrol currently
sells at around $3.12 in the
Bahamas.

Challenges to the protection of





our underwater cultural heritage


DURING the
course of recent
meetings
between the
Antiquities,
Monuments and Museums Cor-
poration (AMMC) and inter-
national groups interested in
doing salvage and archaeologi-
cal research on some of our
Family Islands, the vulnerabili-
ty of The Bahamas in protecting
its underwater and cultural her-
itage in these fields was brought
into more clearer and frighten-
ing focus.
At a seminar held in Colom-
bia, South America, in early
December, 2004, similar con-
cerns as they adversely affect
small island states in this region
constituted the main focus of
its agenda.
The AMMC was represent-
ed at those talks and thus the
views of The Bahamas on chal-
lenges our country faces with
respect to the protection of its
underwater cultural heritage
were also added to the discus-
sions. The thrust of it follows.

CHALLENGES
The geographical position of
The Bahamas, just off the coast
of Florida, provides an enviable
advantage for the development
of its tourist industry that has
resulted in a lucrative sector
which hosts more than four mil-
lion visitors annually. On the
downside, however, some of our
four million visitors are trea-
sure-seekers, who indiscrimi-
nately exploit the cultural
resources of these islands.
This exploitation becomes
easy to achieve by the fact that
the population of The Bahamas
is estimated at 305,000. More
than 75 per cent of this popula-
tion resides on the two urban
centres of Freeport, Grand
Bahama, and Nassau on New
Providence.
There are islands in the
southern Bahamas that are geo-
graphically larger than most
Caribbean.,states, but which.
have populations of fewer than
5,000, the majority of which sub-
sist on small-scale farming and
fishing.
Significantly, the percentage
of non-Bahamian residents on
many of these islands can
exceed 25 per cent of the small
populations. It is essentially in
waters surrounding these islands
that the vulnerability of
Bahamian maritime cultural
resources is most pronounced.
Another challenge to the pro-
tection of Bahamian cultural
resources is the traditional polit-
ical view that such sites should
be considered in terms of mon-
etary value. This view is espe-
cially noted in cases of Spanish
treasure, where cash-strapped
governments have been swayed
by unscrupulous salvors into
mostly non-beneficial schemes
with promises of great financial
profit and international expo-
sure.
The experience of the
AMMC in this regard has been
its involvement in discussions
in which salvors promise large
sums of money up front and the
establishment of maritime


KERZNER International
Limited, a leading international
developer and operator of des-
tination resorts, casinos and
luxury hotels announced this
week the detailed plans to
develop 88 luxury condomini-
unm homes on the East End of
Paradise Island near the leg-
endary One&Only Ocean Club.
Construction of Ocean Club
Residences & Marina is sched-
uled to begin in Spring 2005
with completion slated for
Spring 2007. The luxury condo-
minium homes will be built
within the exclusive private
enclave of Ocean Club Estates
adjacent to the championship
Ocean Club Golf Course. The
new Ocean Club Residences &
Marina development will enjoy
many of the services and ameni-
ties available to One&Only
Ocean Club and Atlantis, Par-
adise Island resort guests.
One&Only Ocean Club on
Paradise Island in the Bahamas
has long held an incomparable
allure to those who expect the
best. Now this supreme level of
luxury will be available to
homeowners of Ocean Club
Residences & Marina. Ocean
Club Residences & Marina will


museums and/or conservation
laboratories in exchange for
almost unlimited access to sal-
vage opportunities in Bahamian
waters.
An even more urgent chal-
lenge to the protection of mar-
itime cultural resources in
Caribbean basin states is the
occasional claim by some devel-
oped countries to wrecks con-
sidered to be Spanish and/or
American national resources.
I This situation is especially
emphatic in the case of The
Bahamas, which is geographi-
cally close to the United States,
and which is host to several US
military facilities, including a
submarine testing facility that
is jointly used by NATO part-
ners. Further exacerbating the
situation is the fact that some
developed nations challenge
and otherwise reject the author-
ity of the United Nations to
establish conventions to protect
cultural resources.
The Bahamas has limited
economic resources to expend
on the protection of its cultural
resources. We are a former
British colony, which has adopt-
ed systems of governance that
required regular elections of
public officials.
Some public officials focus on
pleasing their constituents with
roads, schools and social wel-
fare programmes. Regrettably,
little resources or consideration
are devoted or available for the
development of cultural
resources programmes. And so
museums, conservation and
preservation programmes
become a low government pri-
ority. Into this cultural vacuum
enter The Bahamas National


Trust and The Bahamas His-
torical Society.
In the past, selected sub-sec-
tions of the national cultural
patrimony have been randomly
divided among the various
organizations, with one organ-
ising and developing archaeol-
ogy, another museums, and still
another controlling historic
preservation programmes.

SOLUTIONS
The Bahamas took steps to
address traditional inadequa-
cies in the protection and devel-
opment of cultural resources
with the establishment of a qua-
si-governmental corporation -
the Antiquities, Monuments
and Museums Corporation.
Most of the authority tradition-
ally accorded to the National
Trust and heritage societies are
now under the umbrella of a
single national agency.
This new innovation has
allowed for a more co-ordinated
approach to, and use of, limited
resources for cultural heritage
development and protection.
One of the primary goals of the

dens, resort-style pools, a fit-
ness facility, 24-hour security,
additional storage, covered and
surface'parking and a private
marina that will accommodate
yachts of up to 120 feet. The
four, six-story buildings will be
arranged on the site to take full
advantage of prevailing breezes
and capture expansive views of
the gardens, Nassau Harbour,
the championship Tom
Weiskopf-designed golf course
and the ocean.
Homeowners will enjoy
access to a private beach club
on Cabbage Beach reserved
exclusively for the owners of
Ocean Club Residences &
Marina and Ocean Club
Estates. The fully appointed
beach club will include a colo-
nial-style cabana with changing
rooms and showers, an open-
air bar, and a swimming pool.
Purchasers may choose one of
eighty three-bedroom/three-
and-a-half-bath condominium
homes or one of eight, four-bed-
room/four-and-a-half-bath pent-
houses (media rooms may be
converted to a fifth bedroom).
Sizes will range from 3,000
square feet to 7,200 square feet.


gest that one solution to this
problem of protecting and pre-
serving our national underwater
cultural resources is to first
develop a regional committee,
which in turn would develop a
database that should include
information on illegal and
authorised underwater archae-
ological activities.
This database could serve as a
warning against advances by
unscrupulous treasure hunters
disguised as legitimate agencies
wishing to advance national cul-
tural programmes. This
exchange of information could
save the loss of irreplaceable
and possibly irretrievable cul-
tural resources.
Traditionally, The Bahamas
has suffered from the lure of
such unscrupulous treasure
hunters. In the division of spoils
from salvage operations in
Bahamian waters, our share
includes virtually worthless arti-
facts, while that of the salvor
include priceless gems and arti-
facts. Today, there is a position

ties are considering for early

implementation. Among other
things, the paper offers the fol-
lowing recommendations:

National policy on salvage
should be revised as a priority.
Wrecks and wreck environs
should be determined to be
archaeological resources, and
not mere treasure trove.
The existing Abandoned
Ships Act should be repealed, in
acknowledgement that the
Antiquities, Monuments and
Museums Act provides for the
protection of terrestrial and
aquatic archaeology.
'* Significant wreck sites ,
should be reserved,as miyiiine,
parks. ,
Alliance with local fisher-
men, who are significant sources
of information on the location
of wrecks, should be formed.
Only accredited and rep-
utable research
institutions/companies may
enter into negotiations for
aquatic archaeological research.
Local dive operations
should be encouraged to pro-
mote visitation to the marine
parks as dive attractions, simi-
larly to the promotions and
management of terrestrial sites
such as forts and museums.
The historically significant
wreck sites should be declared
national monuments.
There is a need for an inven-
tory of human and technical
resources and facilities existing
in various public and private
agencies, from which interest-
ed professional services can tap
into whenever necessary. Par-
ticipating agencies should be
aware of the availability of such
resources and how best to
access the related services.
As an example of the above,
the AMMC should be able to
contract the services of an

such facilities should be grad-

The Bahamas remains inr con-

more of its aquatic cultural
resources. This trend will con-

received less than 10 per cent,..
in profit sharing.
Over the years, and in the
absence of adequate legislative
protection, many shipwrecks
havebeen plundered and their
historical value severely under-
mined. Many artifacts have
been recovered, taken out of
the country without authorisa-
tion, and subsequently lost to
Bahamian cultural heritage.
Thus, we have published the
above out of concern for the
protection and preservation of
our national cultural heritage.
A word to the wise, it is said,
should be sufficient.
Think on these things.

S VIOLET LMANA ALBIAIRY
March 29th 1942 January 22nd 2004
To my Mom,
As I watched you suffer with so much pain, I was amazed
at the strength you showed.
I remembered holding your hand, and thinking back on how
hard they worked, not only for your children, but for everyone
you knew, family, friends or strangers.
I remembered how as I watched you struggle to take a breath,
I would think back on my life and realized that you exuded so
much strength even now because all of your life you struggled.
You struggled to give your family the best that you could; and
you did.
For you taught me that it is not what we own that makes us
happy and successful, but what we have inside.
I remembered thinking of these things and asking God to let
me take your place, for you had so much more to offer this world
than I ever could.
It was with those thoughts, that I realized that we are not to
question or ask why, only to believe that the Lord's will, will be
done.
What was it that I was to learn by watching you, the greatest
person I knew, struggled with such pain. I would like to think
that it is so that I can become a better person. So everyday I now
live with the thoughts of, "what would my Mom do"? I would
try to be more like you. For I know that if I live to be a thousand
years old, there would be no one more wonderful that I could
learnm from.
I miss you every minute. I thank you everyday and I love you
always.

Infusion

TAKE a journey through the life of Bahamian dancer and choreographer, Mar-
.in Smith. as his Fihe Fold Bahamian Theatre and Foundation brings you the encore
presentation of "Infusion". The group initially shared the story in October at the
Holy Trinity Activity Centre, and now it will be re-told in similar fashion at the
National Centre for the Performing Arts on Saturday night.
Smith is calling it "Infusion" because the performance blends three segments of
ballet to tell one story. He says that the energy you will feel from the music,
matched with dramatic dance moves and "fluid" choreography, will keep you
wanting to know what will happen next. First, he takes us through his Songs of Tes-
tament (segment one) which sets out 10 inspirational songs, then to his Destiny (seg-
ment 2), where the audience learns of Smith's process of becoming a dancer. The
show ends with Raging Beauty segment, where music and professional ballet will
create a serene atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
Fan of dance or not, Smith says that the show has something for everyone. And
as the music changes tempo and rhythm throughout, those who attend will not be
bored. Call 3413995 or 3566643 to reserve tickets at $10. Tickels will also be
available at the door at a cost of $15 for adults and $7 for children.
